Japan and the European Union

Full Product Description

In this volume, Dr Abe sets out to answer a number of crucial questions on the effect of Japan's international relations upon its internal affairs - in particular how international issues, and Japan's growing relationship with the EU, have come to penetrate the political economy and decision-making structure in Japanese industry and legislation. Japan/EU affairs have never been marked by any significant political relations, and until the past 20 years, characterised by a reserved indifference.However, as a result of accelerated political and economic relations largely initiated by trade concerns. the author examines the development of this relationship informed by international relations perspectives and taking into account the growing dependence of successful bilateral relations on the international political economy. Furthermore, Dr Abe explains the attempt that has been made to resolve Japanese/EU disputes by way of a joint declaration. This includes an examination of the 1991 Automobile Agreement involving Japan, the EC Commission and the Japanese manufacturers; and the Liquor Tax dispute which ran from 1986-1995. Throughout this account, the concerns of the United States, and its impact on their relationship, are fully registered.
